Doddie Weir Charity Burns Night Supper

Thursday 25th January 2018

The Supporters Club¬† joined forces with some former Falcons players in hosting a Burns Night Supper to raise money for Doddie’s MND charity.

As a prologue to the Supper, on the morning of 24th, Gary Armstrong delivered the finest haggis to a group of former Newcastle Falcons players, including Stuart Grimes, Jim Naylor and Pete Massey at Carter Bar, (Scottish Border). They carried the Haggis to Kingston Park to present to Doddie at the Burns Night Supper. Along the way the team was joined by family and friends in order to raise as much money as possible for the foundation. If you would still like to make a donation you can do this at www.justgiving.com/haggishike

The evening was incredibly well attended, with the downstairs West Stand bar packed with tables and diners. The event followed the tradional Burns Supper theme, with the piping in and address to the haggis. There were speeches from an array of rugby and media celebrities, and the evening culminated in a Burns poem competition amongst some of the current and former players.

The Supporters Club would like to thank everyone who helped, attended,and/or donated to this excellent cause. In a £6,221.50 was donated to the Foundatation.
